The nominees for this year’s Rondo Awards have been announced and I’m proud to say that not only was my column for HorrorHound, They Came from the Krypt, nominated once again for Best Column, but my book, Discover the Horror, was also nominated for Book of the Year!!! I am shocked, amazed, as well as humbled to even have it nominated. Being in the same categories as authors like Gary D. Rhodes, Lee Gambin, Roberto Curti, and Bryan Senn, is an honor alone. And I’m sure my step-mother is rolling in her grave at the thought of the kid she used to help try forming a sentence that actually made sense, now has a book nominated for a Rondo! Wonders never cease.
If you by chance haven’t picked up your copy, you can still order them directly from me (and get it signed at no extra cost!!!). Just click the link to the right for all the info.
Now is the time for you to do your part and cast your vote. Yes, I would love to have you vote for me in the Best Column category as well as Book of the Year, but really I hope that you cast your vote. Quite a few of people listed throughout all the categories do what they do out of the passion of it. Some make a little money at it, while others make none. Some of them put their blood, sweat, and tears into these projects, so it is up to their fans and their peers to let them now what they are doing matters.
So please take a few minutes, head over to the Rondo Awards website (just click HERE), and cast your votes. You don’t have to vote for every category, but the ones that you do know. You have until March 29th to get them in. Just email your picks to David Colton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And yes, we’d love your vote, but please just vote!
